Browned Butter Bread Pudding
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 8  cups  1-inch cubes dry, sweet egg bread (such as challah or Hawaiian)*
  • 1  cup  chopped pitted dates
  • 3/4  cup  butter
  • 6  eggs, beaten
  • 3  cups  milk
  • 1/3  cup  sugar
  • 1  tablespoon  vanilla

From the Test Kitchen*Note:
  • To make dry bread cubes, spread the cubes out on a large baking sheet. Let them stand, uncovered, on a kitchen counter overnight, stirring the bread cubes occasionally.
